I’m fascinated by children. In equal measure they can be both endearing and terribly frustrating, but more than finding them “cute” or alternately irritating, they’re so interesting to observe from a psychological perspective. In painfully obvious detail children can expose some of the slightly darker aspects of humanity as much as they can illuminate redeeming aspects of it.
